comment How do I get the information I need in order to use unison and ssh to synchronise files
A very useful summary, @mtm. Thank you (and everyone who responded). I have signed on with No-IP and will see how it goes from there. With luck that is the major hurdle overcome. I like the idea of ssh and unison, and will continue on that path, but I do appreciate the other suggestions.

@sim, thank you for the suggestion of sparkleshare. I will look into it a bit to see if I should take up your kind offer.

comment What is fedmsg?
Thank you @sim, yes that helps. I have followed up all the references I can,and get the feeling that fedmsg is something that runs in the background, easing package installation, but otherwise as a general user, I can just forget about it.

comment What is fedmsg?
Thank you @sim, but I am afraid that the Overview you refer to is what I meant by "couched in such technical terms and so full of jargon, that I find it impenetrable". There are two kinds of answer to a question like this: those that allow the experts to nod wisely to one another, and those that make things clear to the naive enquirer. I was after the second one.
